Ibai Rigby - Dashilang Hutong III - Juror's Honorable Mention

‘Serene, comforting, intimate, eloquent, secure, fragile, uncertain, precarious, even ambivalent. All these words can well describe any number of images in this exhibition. Home is such a wonderful and universal concept that it was always going to elicit a profound engagement from photographers. It is a deeply felt notion, but one which manifests so completely differently in each of our hearts and minds. It is a notion that is eventually discovered, identified and expressed in so many different ways and through so many unique prisms of belief, experience and perspective.’ – Kevin Miller

Evergreen Fine Art: Miniature Masterpieces 2016

Miniature Masterpieces 2016

Evergreen Fine Art Gallery

November 19 - December 7, 2016

  • Opening Reception: Saturday, November 19 from 2-5pm

A world of small wonders lies in store as Evergreen Fine Art Gallery & Sculpture Garden prepares to unveil its seventh annual Miniature Masterpieces exhibition on Saturday, November 19, 2016, 2-5 pm.

This year’s much-anticipated celebration of scale will feature works by 50 large talents presented in delightfully diminutive dimensions. Miniature Masterpieces offers a rare opportunity to marvel at the patience, concentration and immense skill needed to render a universe of beauty in less than 120 square inches. The invitational event will also afford art collectors the opportunity to add some very prominent signatures to their personal gallery at more modest prices.

“Miniature Masterpieces is an absolute favorite around the holidays,” says Evergreen Fine Arts’ Gallery Director, Doug Kacena. “It’s perfect for entry-level collectors who are just beginning to build their collections, and it’s a good opportunity for more established collectors to fill in the gaps in their collections. There’ll be several pieces by each artist, and one of the fun things about the show is that the themes and subjects are all over the board.” Taos artist and nationally acclaimed oil painter Walt Gonske, for example, may provide a Lilliputian look at a variety of subject matter. Denver artist Robert Spooner, will certainly display a striking selection of paintings, and Pem Dunn of Evergreen is sure to portray nature’s grand pageant upon the smallest of stages.

Among many others who’ll be doing their best and their smallest for Miniature Masterpieces, and who’ll be glad to discuss their work at the exhibit opening, are highly regarded landscape masters such as Dave Santillanes, Susiehyer, Keith Bond, Kevin Weckbach, oil painter on stainless steel Mai Wyn Schantz, nationally esteemed wildlife artist Edward Aldrich, still life virtuoso Kelli Folsom and abstract painter Karen Roehl. In addition, a selection of noted sculptors such as Pati Stajcar, Sandy Graves, Stephen LeBlanc, and Rosetta will create miniature masterpieces in subtle shades of bronze and stone.

Talented artists are masters at visually weaving a tale. They invite each viewer to become a part of the story. Mirada Fine Art brings some of these brilliant ‘writers’ together in a very special collaborative exhibit. Although frequently an artist will want you to draw your own conclusions, in this particular exhibition the story behind the artwork will be on clear display. Many of Mirada's core artists will be participating including acclaimed North Carolina artist Jeanne Bessette as well as Mirada's newest artist, Janice Sugg.

RISE: Jenny Morgan Self-Portraits

Sangre de Cristo White Gallery (Pueblo, CO)

October 8, 2016 – January 15, 2017

  • Guest Curated by Ivar Zeile, Owner/Director of the plus + gallery in Denver
Morgan RiseJenny Morgan - Rise

The Sangre de Cristo Art Center is proud to present works by rising star, Jenny Morgan. Morgan’s deeply personal work pushes the boundaries of figurative art by exploring innovative methods of modifying her nearly photographic, meticulous paintings. Her haunting self-portraits are perfectly realized only to be obliterated; their surfaces sanded and stripped away to reveal physical and spiritual torment. By disturbing the surface of the canvas, she achieves a striking intensity and psychological depth in her work, breaking through the ideals of traditional portraiture and the preciousness of realism. Her self-portraits examine the complexity of individual perception, providing the viewer a visual and conceptual window into the exposed personae of the self.

Guest curator Ivar Zeile has selected paintings from collectors based in Colorado whom agreed to contribute their “Jennys” to this celebratory exhibition. Zeile has worked closely with the collectors and the artist for many years as the artist’s representative through Plus Gallery. This show is a true collaboration between the artist, curator, collectors, and Sangre de Cristo Arts Center. Says Zeile about Morgan, “From Van Gogh over a century ago, to Cindy Sherman today, self-portraiture holds a singular place in art, whether as a working tool, fascination or ‘mirror’ of individual and collective reality that stimulates both artists and collectors alike. A very distinct and continually evolving case in point is that of Jenny Morgan, a young contemporary painter who since emerging through Denver Colorado’s gallery circuit in 2002 has developed her own particular attachment to the self to build a formidable career with a unique trajectory unlike any other in art today. “Rise - Jenny Morgan Self Portraits in Colorado Collections from 2009 and 2016” is the first exhibition to capture this extraordinary development, a snapshot into one of the most exciting art practices of our times, shaping historic antecedents in a manner that is highly nuanced and thoroughly compelling.”

The Fort Collins Museum of Art presents Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray, an exhibition of photographs of Frida Kahlo, on view from October 7 – January 8, 2017. This exhibition provides an intimate look at Frida Kahlo, Mexico’s most prolific and well-known female artist, through the photographic lens of her long-time friend and lover, Nickolas Muray. The photographic portraits, dating from 1937 to 1946, explore Muray’s unique perspective; in the 1930s and 1940s he was Frida Kahlo's friend, lover and confidant. Muray's photographs bring to light Kahlo's deep interest in her Mexican heritage, her life and the people significant to her with whom she shared a close friendship.

Evergreen Fine Art: Edward Aldrich: A Walk in the Wild

Edward Aldrich: A Walk in the Wild

Evergreen Fine Art Gallery

October 1 - November 5, 2016

  • Opening Reception and Gallery Talk: Saturday, October 1, 2-5pm
Aldrich touching-the-sky
Edward Aldrich, "Touching the Sky", 20x24, oil

There’s nothing quite so thrilling as a candid encounter with Nature on its own terms. Celebrated wildlife artist Edward ‘Ned’ Aldrich is an unsurpassed master at capturing those moving, mysterious, magical moments on canvas, and this October guests to “A Walk in the Wild” at Evergreen Fine Art Gallery will enjoy intimate glimpses of many of the West’s most secretive subjects in all of their unguarded glory.

“A Walk in the Wild”  features nearly 20 new works by the award-winning Golden oil painter, each one showcasing the stunning realism and dramatic force that’s made Aldrich a favorite of collectors from coast to coast and beyond the seas. If his subtle brush conveys the coarseness of the wolf’s winter coat and the wild aggression of the bull-elk’s challenge, his unsurpassed awareness of nature’s infinite unaffected attitudes gives them presence and place.

“Each painting expresses a different concept or feel,” explains Aldrich, a 1987 Rhode Island School of Design graduate who was juried into the Society of Animal Artists just four years later at the age of 26. “One might be based on color, one of echoing shapes, one on interesting lighting, or one eliciting the feeling of power or mystery. My hope is that the viewers get a small amount of the feeling I intended from the differing pieces.” Those fortunate viewers taking “A Walk in the Wild” can rest assured they’ll get a lot more than a little of nature’s instinctual intensity and quiet spectacle. Aldrich’s potent realism and almost empathic connection with his subjects have earned him the respect and admiration of artists and art lovers across the West, and this year he’s been named as the featured artist of Jackson Hole’s prestigious Fall Arts Festival. What’s more, one of Aldrich’s images was chosen to be the public face of “Western Visions,” an important festival fundraiser benefitting the National Museum of Wildlife Art.

Roehl ThinkinOnIt
Karen Roehl, "Thinkin' On It", mixed media, 36x28

Imagine what would happen if one of Colorado’s most admired abstract painters shared a canvas with one of Denver’s most gifted realists.

That intriguing fantasy will be captivating reality on Sep. 10 as Evergreen Fine Art Gallery unveils “Horse with Beach Ball, and other Western Amalgamations,” an extraordinary exhibit that will bridge one of the art world’s most persistent divides by way of the opposing passions and complementary talents of celebrated abstract impressionist and brilliant realist Karen Roehl.

“Horse with Beach Ball” will feature more than a dozen of Roehl’s distinctive works, horses rendered in animate perfection upon powerful fields of abstraction. Whether multi-hued or monochromatic, high-contrast or hushed, her artful blending of discrete form and pure emotion fills the eye with harmony and leaves the viewer agreeably indifferent to competing artistic labels. For what it’s worth, Roehl will be the first to admit that her singular style has virtually nothing to do with fostering artistic accord, and everything to do with reconciling the two halves of her own creative heart.

Mohammad Mounir Al Zamel in recovery by Benjamin Rasmussen and Michael Friberg

"The Syrian civil war, now in its fifth year, began when a group of young people spray painted anti-regime graffiti on the walls of their school. Their arrest, detention and torture led to protests and a violent crackdown by the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. The series of actions and reactions has led to the deaths of an estimated 470,000 Syrians and caused 4.8 million more to flee the country. More than 1.4 million of these refugees have headed south to neighboring Jordan. Some have stayed in the Zaatari refugee camp, while most have spread throughout Jordan, settling in for what they believe to be a long separation from their homes and communities as they wait out a war with no end in sight." -Benjamin Rasmussen and Michael Friberg

Photographers Benjamin Rasmussen (Denver) and Michael Friberg (Salt Lake City) have created an editorial style series of work about the refugee crisis and those currently living in the Zaatari camp in Jordan. The immediacy of the images makes the Syrian refugees’ turmoil and living conditions relatable to the viewer and all the more real than a news report. Come see this deeply impactful and visually stunning exhibit for free at The Center for Fine Art Photography.

Clay Hawkley: Second Rodeo

Firehouse Art Center (Longmont)

June 29 - July 31, 2016

  • Opening Reception: Friday, July 8 from 6-9pm
second rodeo

Last summer Hawkley created Hitch Gallery, a mobile experimental art space attached to the back of his car. Using found objects reflecting the community at-large, Hawkley created spontaneous compositions where and when the objects were found. In Second Rodeo these same objects are transformed and reworked for a formal exhibition. In one piece, a beat up tarp -used to wrap around objects for Hitch Gallery- is transformed into a stunning work of art with a floral pattern cut-out. By seeing the new life of the found objects, along with a photo series of Hitch Gallery, viewers can expect to be challenged about where and what art can be.

"This exhibition shows two different ways of working. The photo series is from a show I had last September where I collected random objects and strapped them to a wall I built for the back of my car. I changed the object out every few days to stay loose and experimental. Once that show ended I starting thinking about what I could make from the objects. I took time to think about, look at and handle the materials as I made decisions. The reanimated objects are much more considered then they were in their initial showing. Both ways of working are important to what I do.

cp.evergreen
All works by Collin Parson Courtesy of Michael Warren Contemporary, Denver

Three Views celebrates the similarities and differences of two family generations of creativity. With the common bonds of time and place, their separate visual vocabularies speak to the 21st century’s experience of living in the Western United States. The distinctions of views of light and shadow, massive scale and delicateness, expansive space and airy atmosphere, address the connections of landscapes and passages of time.

The Parsons share the use of geometric forms, usage of everyday architectural materials and techniques, technology, and individual manipulations and mark-making. This exhibition acknowledges essayist Wendell Berry’s projection of the passing on of traditions, while embracing each generation’s distinctive perceptions and innovations.

The resulting experience of this exhibit is to enrich the viewers’ looking and thinking, specifically of the contemporary western experience we all share. The artists aspire to present contemplative moments of the universal themes represented by sunrise and sunsets; earth’s surfaces and forms; the West’s spaces and the individual’s sense of place in it.

Evergreen Fine Art: Weekend in the West 2016

Weekend in the West 2016: Art Show and Auction

June 24 - July 16, 2016

  • Weekend Events on Friday and Saturday, June 24 & 25

Long a treasury of the Rocky Mountain region’s most celebrated Western art, Evergreen Fine Art Gallery will again be host to a peerless collection of the country’s most celebrated Western artists.

The 6th annual Weekend in the West Art Show and Auction will showcase 50 top-tier painters and sculptors gathered from across the Mountain West, giving art lovers a rare opportunity to watch those talents at work and take home a masterpiece created before their very eyes. Already a must for collectors, the invitational event properly begins on June 18, with a preview week, as the artists’ works go on display in the gallery, giving folks plenty of time to get pre-acquainted with some of the most respected names in Western art.

“There’s a nice combination of Old West and New West”, says Evergreen Fine Art’s director, Doug Kacena. “There’ll be some very traditional art and themes, and some abstract and contemporary works.”

The bright galaxy of participating artists include such recognized luminaries as Quang Ho, Edward Aldrich, G. Russell Case, Karen Roehl, Jeff Legg, David Santillanes, Pem Dunn, Jill Soukup, Ron Hicks, Walt Gonske, Robert Spooner, Don Stinson and Kim English. Masters in three dimensions will include Evergreen sculptor Pati Stajcar and bronze artists Jan Mapes, Stephen LeBlanc, and Sandy Graves.

The Weekend formally begins with a Western-style Gala reception at 5 p.m. on Friday, June 24, featuring food, drink, and live music by cowboy laureate Dean Himes. The next morning at 9 o’clock sharp, the artists will muster in the gallery’s sculpture garden for a real Western showdown – each master will have exactly 90 minutes to complete a first-rate original work, and guests get to be astounded at the way they invariably do.

“This is the mountain region’s largest Quick-Draw event,” smiles Hadley. “You’d be amazed what these artists can do in 90 minutes. It’s a wonderful opportunity to observe them at work.” When the bell rings at precisely 10:30, brushes go down and champagne flutes go up. While artists frame the morning’s accomplishments, collectors will gather in a large white tent for a champagne brunch, followed by a live auction at which guests will have the chance to own newly-minted masterpieces even before the paint is dry.

Tickets for the champagne brunch and auction cost $35 per person. That price includes a genuine Western serenade by cowboy-poet Dean Himes, and a generous portion of all proceeds will help support Bootstraps Scholarships.

Folks wishing to take advantage of everything Weekend in the West has to offer should consider purchasing a Patron ticket package that includes the champagne brunch and auction, plus a picture-perfect gallery dinner with the artists on the evening of Thursday, June 23. Even better, the entire cost of a Patron ticket can be applied to any artwork purchased during Friday’s opening reception.

For those not able to attend the weekend events, the exhibit runs through July 16, 2016. To learn more about Weekend in the West, call Evergreen Fine Art Gallery at 303-679-3610, or visit www.evergreenfineart.com and http://www.weekendinthewest.com.

Stephen Batura has become well-known as a Colorado artist whose subject matter has remained close to home. His exquisite paintings are based upon the historical images of little-known Denver photographer Charles Lillybridge. His limited-palette paintings reflect the black-and-white source photographs, yet Batura alters the original images in order to economize the compositions and to reflect his painterly hand.

Richard Renaldi: Touching Strangers

Fort Collins Museum of Art

May 27 - July 24, 2016

Elaine-and-ArlyRichard Renaldi - Elaine and Arly, New York, New York, 2012

Since 2007, Richard Renaldi has been working on a series of photographs that involve approaching and asking complete strangers to physically interact while posing together for a portrait. Renaldi pairs his subjects up and invites them to pose together, intimately, in ways that people are usually taught to reserve for their close friends and loved ones.

Renaldi creates spontaneous and fleeting relationships between strangers for the camera, often pushing his subjects beyond their comfort levels. These relationships may only last for the moment the shutter is released, but the resulting photographs are moving and provocative, and raise profound questions about the possibilities for positive human connection in a diverse society.

Sandy Arvidson, Untitled

The Fort Collins Museum of Art’s 12th annual Masks exhibition and silent auction will be held from April 1st to May 6th, 2016. Since 2003, the Masks Project has attracted both professional artists, whose creativity is their economic main stay and recreational artists, who respond to their need to express their creativeness in ingenious styles. The result is an exhibition of 200 pieces of unconventional art, the celebratory Masks Grand Gala on April 22, 2016, and a tribute to the 2016 Honorary Chair, Michael Powers.
